Nice to see the MBC drama Wonderful World, Episode 7 ratings back on the rise last night as it heads into its second half tonight, and after a fall for the Korean drama’s previous episode.

The latest viewership numbers via Nielsen Korea show Wonderful World, Episode 7 grabbed 8.5 percent of the nationwide viewership, making it the third most watched show on Korean TV for all of Friday.

That rating, by the way, was a big jump from its previous episode’s 7.3 percent of the audience share.

The K-drama’s ratings in Seoul were also around the same — 8.3 percent last night — and again with an increase from Episode 6’s rating of 7.0 percent, which is a substantial increase of 1.3 percent.

The lowest rating Wonderful World has received so far, by the way, was for its first episode, before South Korean audiences realized how good the drama was, and how superb its main leads’ performances.

And even then, the Korean drama premiered to strong viewer numbers.

Where to watch Wonderful World?

Wonderful World stars Kim Nam Joo, Cha Eun Woo, Kim Kang Woo, and Im Se Mi.

The K-drama airs on MBC ever Friday and Saturday evening at 9:50 pm Korean time, which means it will be kicking off its first episode in its second half later on tonight.

It will then run through April 10th, when its final episode (Episode 14) will end the series.

Disney Plus is streaming the Korean drama for its subscribers in a very select number of international regions.
